The M.I.A.C. went 2-1 in our spotlight this week, as many of the schools kicked off their 2013 season. This week we focused on Bethel-Wartburg, St. Olaf-Luther, and Gustavus-Simpson.

Turnovers played a big role in two of the three games today, leading directly to points in the case of the Bethel's victory, and playing a big role in Simpson's loss to Gustavus.

Bethel defeats Wartburg

Josh Treimar intercepted three Wartburg passes in the game and returned one for a touchdown to lead Bethel to a 30-17 victory over Wartburg on Saturday. Brandon Marquardt also rushed for 109 yards on 14 carries and two scores and Bethel quarterback Erik Petersen completed 25 of 36 passes for 311 yards.

Treimar intercepted a pass with around four minutes to play in the first half and returned it 27 yards to put Bethel up 17-0 in the first half.

Bethel withstood a second half rally from Wartburg to hold on to the 13 point victory to help lift them to the victory in their season opener.

St. Olaf falls to Luther

A blocked punt in the fourth quarter set up a 20 yard Josh Vos touchdown run, breaking a tie and lifting Luther College over St. Olaf 20-13 on Saturday. Vos ran for 142 yards and two scores on 23 carries in the game.

St. Olaf kicker converted on a 19 yard field goal with just over 12 minutes to go to pull even at 13, but that was short lived as it would only be moments later, that Tusa's punt was blocked leading to the eventual game winning score.

The win was the first by Luther in more than a year, as they finished 0-10 last season.

St. Olaf (0-1) travels to Concordia next Saturday.

Gustavus survives a late rally from Simpson

Simpson quarterback Taylor Nelson tossed two fourth quarter touchdowns but it wasn't enough as Gustavus held on to win a wild game at home on Saturday.

Mitch Hendricks and Jeffery Dubose ran for a pair of touchdowns each to lead Gustavus to the victory. Hendricks also threw for 222 yards.

The biggest key was the four turnovers forced by the Gustavus defense.

Gustavus (1-0) heads to Augsburg next week.
